    manufacturing or facilities maintenance? just curious as i do some work in your area for wastewater facilities.

    My company is an Industrial electrical contractor, systems integrator, and UL listed control panel manufacturer. I design, program, and start up the control systems we build and install, as well as provide tech service for PLC control systems, both our own and systems from other manufacturers.

    Going on eight years babysitting convicted felons behind tall fences with razor wire separating us from society. Twelve more years to go and I'll be free of all that BS. Also spend a couple days a week working on a inshore lobster boat for the sake of my sanity.

    Aerospace assembly and facility tool design for 25+ years at the same company, providing full service tooling solutions with a great group of people. The last 12 for me with a home office. Have done work for all the manufacturers from the smaller Cirrus and Piper aircraft to military fighters, commercial airliners and spacecraft. Really enjoy the creativity of 3D computer tool design with the occasional on-site work. Very thankful for a steady, enjoyable career that let me and the family enjoy our previous years of boat racing and our now more relaxed north woods (and waters) lifestyle.

    Kind of joined late into this thread.....currently running a 65ft/95 ton steel simulated paddlewheel riverboat. Twin Volvo diesel/sterndrives and a 25K diesel genny. Got my 100T USCG Master License last year and crewed for a year before that. A year being 6 months in central PA. I'm also a lighting and sound tech/manager for a 1600 seat auditorium at our High School. On the side I run my own TV Production Company and we televise college and high school sports......about 40 a year. We also run the gas dock at the Marina. Pretty busy and being a Captain will be a great retirement job! Only 4 years away from that! Here's my full service bar on the water! We run six days a week from 10am-10pm. https://www.facebook.com/hiawatha.paddlewheelriverboat/https://www.facebook.com/mike.strunk.54/photos_all

    Started my work life after college in Chicago doing international food marketing. Left big city life to return to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and sold drugs (Pharma). After 16 years they decided Obama care was going to bankrupt the industry they let me go. Decided to open my own brewery, now I run a brewery and rarely get to boat or brew.

    Does anyone know how to make the speedo default to gps instead of paddle? My paddle wheel is showing about 8 mph less than gps and it keeps flipping back and forth between the two on the system view.
